The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture recently announced that it will include quarterback Colin Kaepernick in its exhibit, but it has no plans to include Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Many wonder why the museum would honor a free agent football player who wouldn’t stand for the national anthem and ignore the nation’s longest-serving black justice.
The museum’s spokesman gave this very weak excuse for overlooking such a solid leader, “There are many compelling personal stories about African-Americans who have become successful in various fields, and obviously, Associate Justice Thomas is one of them,” a spokesman said. “However, we cannot tell every story in our inaugural exhibitions.”
